Quinta do Noval 20 Year Old Tawny Port Portuguese Dessert Wine


SKU: 895991002078 Categories: ,


” Top wines of 2017: Decanter Panel Tastings – Set up in 1715, Noval is the only historic Port wine shipper to bear the name of its quinta. Its declaration of 1931 as a vintage year – arguably the greatest vintage of the 20th century – helped establish Quinta do Noval as a famous Port house. Grapes for this tawny are foot-trodden, creating a suitable must for fermentation which is later pressed in large stone vats, called lagares. RM Savoury on the nose and palate. A little toasted and baked but rather lovely, with a dry finish. RS Warm aromas of baked fruit, toast and honey, along with some caramel and hazelnut. Nicely proportioned and uniform yet complex, with a long, lip-smacking finish. DW Caramel dominates the front palate here, while a marked sweetness punctuated by leather and iodine characters create excellent mid-palate weight and expression, with a note of baked orange completing the finale. A sweeter style, but convincing with it” Pts, Decanter Magazine
